Circus Vargas will spread some holiday cheer to families affected by the recession as it brings big-top entertainment to the Valley beginning Thursday.
The circus troupe is giving away 1,000 tickets to unemployed Las Vegans and their children for its 4 p.m. show at the Rio hotel-casino on Thanksgiving Day. Circus Vargas President Nelson Quiroga says the company wanted to show its appreciation for 40-plus years of fan support.
Those interested in the free tickets are asked to bring an unemployment pay stub or layoff notice to the Rio box office at least one hour before Thursday’s show. As many as two adult and two child general admission tickets may be redeemed per party.
Circus Vargas will perform 10 other shows Thursday through Monday
